' the how the daily express describe jeremy corbyn, after it was announced he does not watch the queen's christmas day speech. let's ta ke queen's christmas day speech. let's take this to our guest reviewers tonight. who wants to start? let's start with the times. michael, you go first. it will be a well wind if the tories get in, we're told. boris johnson, the tories are a bit worried. we have had the nato meeting, it has got in the way of campaigning and the messages aren't getting out there, we haven't heard getting out there, we haven't heard get brexit done 100 times a day for the last couple of days will stop he thinks we want to hear that again. it sounds like in tory party hq they are worrying the poles are narrowing are worrying the poles are narrowing a bit. the remaining boat is moving from the lib dems towards labour because labour are the ones who are against the brexiteers, which are 110w against the brexiteers, which are now borisjohnson against the brexiteers, which are now boris johnson and against the brexiteers, which are now borisjohnson and the tory party. now they want to get the message out again, which is 100 days, the first hundred days, if they get in, it will be a whirlwind, 01’ they get in, it will be a whirlwind, or the good things they have promised from their manifesto and possibly a bit more. they have
10:46 pm
already said about increasing the threshold where we pay national insurance, which will save us £85 a year each. £200 for a family. they also say we can include another 15 hours of free childcare a week. something that was considered for the manifesto, didn't quite make it. now they think they might want a few more sweeties to get everyone voting for them. that is what they are saying. they will get on the front foot. they say we want to get parliament working on the people's priorities was that we will hear that as well. we will get sick of it. were all we hear it as often as i have brexit? i'm afraid so. they are worried —— as other and ready brexit. kate, what leaps out at you? a pretty weak list of offers to be honest. they talk about income tax. you will save on average £185 a year per person. that doesn't sound particularly impressive, i have to say. johnson wants to try to be a
10:47 pm
party of low tax and although we're not talking about tax rises, you would be able to contrast it with jeremy corbyn where families would see an increase in tax. this is a very thin list was not may be talking about a childcare policy. we still don't have any answers on social care. as we know, they want to outsource that to have a wider debate in parliament with labour and the other parties to try to come together to try to work out how to fix the crisis in social care. yes, 100 days and i think that is quite an effective thing to do, election —wise, but when it gets down to the nitty—gritty, i don't think they have very many promises here although i think the telegraph may be have had a bit more on what they are planning on doing. you say the telegraph pads out a bit more, what more detail do you think it is giving us? it is talking a little bit more againjust spelling out, in terms of crime, in terms of being tougher in terms of law and order. it repeats the policy may have on
10:48 pm
the 50,000 nurses, talks as well about increasing, sorry, it talks about increasing, sorry, it talks about changing the automatic release of serious violent and sexual offenders, and that comes off the back of the london bridge attack. so there is that message there about there is that message there about the tories being stronger.m there is that message there about the tories being stronger. it is the idea of wanting to be on the front foot. the quote on the front of the time also mentions do you want another gridlocked parliament and i think they will keep saying that. do we wa nt think they will keep saying that. do we want to go into twenty20 in the same method —— the same mess we have been the last few years since 2016. they are talking in the telegraph story about the possible gains for independence, and a protest vote, as you were saying, possibly going to labour, in terms of the remain side. do you think it is suggesting that the tories are a bit rattled?” think they certainly are. from both the times and the telegraph, the tories are getting the message out there they don't want to be like 2017 where we thought they were going to get a landslide. they knew it wasn't going to be easy. the
10:49 pm
polls caught up in the way the labour party go on, it sounds as though they won the last election, but they didn't quite, we need to remind everyone. this time they want to show there is this nervousness at tory hq, but they need to get that vote out. and this is the message that hopefully they think will get through to people. they're the briefing we got from the conservatives was that they are going to be very busy over the next week with back—to—back visits, lots of things happening this weekend, so they are ramping things up. kate, going to the other thing you mentioned, in terms of the left—hand story in the telegraph, but also on the right hand, they've got quite a focused story with some new lines or lines i haven't seen before anyway, on usman khan, saying he was a category a threat. that's right, the idea was he went through a rehabilitation process, and that contributed to his release, and he jumped through the hoops there, and he had shown to some extent he was i'io he had shown to some extent he was no longer a risk, yet it shows here
10:50 pm
he was categorised as category a right until the point of his death, and that is the most serious categorisation, it means he is a high—risk individual, so the idea that he had gone through rehabilitation, that might be the case, but his actual grading is a threat to society and his criminal threat to society and his criminal threat was extremely high, and i'm sure this is a little bit different, new information, not what we thought. the quote is from a government source rather than a prison service source, and the government trying to get that message out again. we heard from jack merritt‘s dad, please don't politicise my son's death, they are saying we are not trying to politicise it but he was a serious risk. he went through the rehabilitation but he played the system, and he had had these violent episodes. he said he had them at the start, and there were some problems at the start of his incarceration but he was still this category a high—risk prisoner right up until his release. so it raises this question of automatic release. and
10:51 pm
it is the government to say we were right to bring it up when we did. yes, it didn't seem a great time, it might seem crass at the time, but the first thing people said to be on the first thing people said to be on the saturday morning, friday night, saturday morning, was why was this quy saturday morning, was why was this guy out? unfortunately people were asking that question and the government and boris johnson asking that question and the government and borisjohnson did have to get that message out there, that this guy, there is a lot of people who were concerned as to how he did get out. the conservatives had a very long time that they could have reviewed those kind of server tips if they wanted to. no doubt at all, where the blame lies we will find out. still a lot of questions to be asked. do we think this is some party political piece. the fact it is on the front of the telegraph as well. it may not be the best time to start talking about ending early release but this guy was category a and people need to know that. let's move on to the guardian. kate, trump
10:52 pm
leaves nato talks after ridicule from allies. we have covered this a bit, butjust fill us from allies. we have covered this a bit, but just fill us in from allies. we have covered this a bit, butjust fill us in on the guardian's take. no macro we are saying he has gone off in a furious half and he has left, this falling out with trudeau. it says he is known to have a thin skin and he is not able to take the criticism, therefore he left early and didn't doa therefore he left early and didn't do a press conference that he was supposed to. it is a really difficult one, because i had thought that trump would use nato to his absolute advantage to try and act in absolute advantage to try and act in a very statesman—like way, and he has the impeachment hearings going on in his own country at the moment and it might have been a chance to try and show a more grown—up side to him. and so although it may be very painful to have heard this group of leaders having a giggle about you, i think to have left prematurely isn't a defining moment either. he did
10:53 pm
leave, he seemed to go in a half, but i think that plays into the hands of donald trump again. they are all in the gang, politicians talking about him behind his back, and there he is, the guy trying to work for the people of america they are all talking behind his back. the guy contributing the most financially. it was interesting in the comment where he said trudeau was to face, he turned the corner and said he was unhappy because i gave him a hard time about not spending 2% on defence. gave him a hard time about not spending 296 on defence. and he also came across well saying he is a nice quy: came across well saying he is a nice guy, trudeau, but... that is a slightly grown—up answer from trump. he had been on his best behaviour, hadn't really interfered in our behaviour, problem saying boris which are a good job. red he had been on his best behaviour and i don't thing it reflects well on people like trudeau or macron. good
10:54 pm
job borisjohnson people like trudeau or macron. good job boris johnson didn't people like trudeau or macron. good job borisjohnson didn't say an awful lot, just sort of asked the question rather than joined in. awful lot, just sort of asked the question rather thanjoined in. that doesn't really reflect well on anyone. in nato's 70th year to be this part of the shot, it is so pooh this part of the shot, it is so poor. elsewhere on the front of the guardian, kate, this is quite interesting i think in the long run. borisjohnson has said some quite... things that appear to move the uk's government position on huawei. the concern is that if we allow huawei to invest in the 56 network in the uk that that could possibly lead to some security issues. this is of the chinese telecom giant, everyone pretty much knows that by now. they're the five eyes intelligence relationship, australia, new zealand, canada, help me out, usa. they are not fans of huawei, and now
10:55 pm
the uk has some stronger language around how there is no intention for huawei to play a bigger role in the 56. but this isjust huawei to play a bigger role in the 56. but this is just for huawei to play a bigger role in the 56. but this isjust for me trying to build partnership, post—brexit relationships with some of those countries, australia, new zealand, whatever they want, britain wants to show it is on the right side in the right place with them as well. this might have been the trade—off with trump being on his best behaviour. you don't know what is being said behind closed doors and this is coming closer to donald trump being very unspoken about it. donald trump while he was in london said huawei isa while he was in london said huawei is a security danger so he has not changed his opinion on it. certainly not. looks like boris is moving towards that, talking on those terms but whether he goes all the way, we don't know yet. although he was quite careful to couch it, because if it goes too far in this direction he risks outraging the chinese.” if it goes too far in this direction he risks outraging the chinese. i do wonder whether this is a story in
10:56 pm
which it is being pushed that boris is actually doing something, thinking of policy positions in a time where there has been a slight news vacuum because time where there has been a slight news vacuum because of nato, and also in terms of the general election, the london bridge attack also meant election campaigning was stalled. so in some ways i think this might be johnson coming out and saying something for the sake of saying something for the sake of saying something. the tightrope they will be on when trying to do brexit deals. that tightrope becomes increasingly hard. we will have to discuss that later. i know you two are coming back in and our‘s time, 01’ are coming back in and our‘s time, or under, but for now, thank you both. that is it for the papers for this hour. as i say, mike and kate will be back shortly. you can see the front pages online of course, on the front pages online of course, on the website, all they are days a week. if you missed programme in the
10:57 pm
evening, watch it later on the iplayer. so, thank you michael, thank you kate, thank you for watching. goodbye. 0ur weather is turning quite murky at the moment. we have got some dense patches of fog and unlike the last couple of nights the fog has become quite widespread to the south—east of this weather front as well. away from that, zooming out into the atlantic, we are looking at the next weather system that is just waiting on the wings. this will spread and bring some rain and strong winds to the north—west of the uk. time being overnight, further showers and brisk south—westerly winds will stop the dense fog patches a few in the midlands but mostly across the thames valley area. fogged out at heathrow, stretches around the m25 some dense fog forming as well. it means that some fog patches may well linger into the first part of
10:58 pm
tomorrow morning, particularly as it is freezing fog we have got, that tends to be a little bit more stubborn in nature. tomorrow's weather no doubt is dominated by this low that will bring the wet and windy weather in. in one front on its way, bringing some milder air with it. thursday morning, a murky start of some of us, fog to start the day, a bit of sunshine around, but in the north—west, no sunshine, just cloudy and wet, with strong south—westerly winds shoving the rain into the mountains of scotland, 70 to 80 millimetres and the forecast for the western highlands, enough to cause some localised flooding issues. the rain also creeps in across northern ireland and gets into the north of england and gets into the north of england and wales. the south—east after a murky start will probably brighten up murky start will probably brighten up with some sunny spells coming through, at least for a time. thursday night will see our band of rain edged southwards, eventually reaching southern areas of england. it turns quite wet for a time. more rain in the charts working into scotland. these are the kind of
10:59 pm
temperatures we will have thursday night and into the first part of friday morning, double figures across the board for most, so a very mild start to the day. it is mild because we have the south—westerly winds with us. those winds also dragging in outbreaks of rain. through friday, the rain will tend to switch over to a mixture of sunshine and showers as north—westerly winds blow in. there is winds bringing some cool air. temperatures dropping through the afternoon, temperatures five in stornoway, quite mild towards the south—east, 11 degrees or so in the london area. for the weekend, probably saturday looks like being the better of the two days will stop a lot of dry and bright weather, the rain could work into northern ireland late in the day and then we will probably see rain work its way eastwards a cross will probably see rain work its way eastwards across the uk, slowly clearing on sunday to give a brighter weather.
11:00 pm
this is bbc news. i'm carrie gracie. the headlines at 11:00: nato unity unravels after canada's leaderjustin trudeau is caught on camera appearing to mock president trump to other leaders. well, he's two face. honestly, trudeau is a nice guy. they honestly find him to be a nice guy. the factors a re find him to be a nice guy. the factors are called him out on the fa ct factors are called him out on the fact that he is not paying 2% and a guess he's not very happy with that. boris johnson insisted there was a wide measure of unity, despite the signs of discord. the new vaccine against typhoid which is being hailed as a game—changer, potentially saving thousands of lives. the impeachment inquiry into president trump moves up a gear, as the us housejudiciary committee considers the charges that
